Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a physical approach to health and wellbeing. Originating in Japan, practitioners work on supporting and strengthening the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself.

A contemporary bodywork therapy, Shiatsu works on all the different energetic levels of your body: physical, emotional and spiritual. Shiatsu is about living your potential and opening your mind to the possibilities available to you.

Shiatsu touch is simple and profound, bringing awareness to all parts of the body. It induces deep relaxation in which mind and body both find healing.

These days many people are hovering between the healthy and sick. There is no positive way of helping them until they become ill in the western sense. With Shiatsu, TCM and other oriental approaches, we can immediately begin treatment to these half-healthy people, before their symptoms develop into a concrete disease that can be categorised. Shiatsu can help to guide people to the goal of health, and that is why I consider it an important health care method that can not only treat but mainly prevent disease.

Shiatsu treatments are given with the client fully clothed, and lying on a futon, massage table or seated. It involves gentle pressure applied by the thumbs and palms, rotations, movement and comfortable stretches.

What my clients say about shiatsu sessions?

Clients’ feedback provides evidence of the many benefits their sessions have provided.

‘Ludmila identifies problem areas before I have noticed them properly. She observes my body language and accurately pinpoints areas of tension, clenched muscles and tight shoulders. Then she proceeds to iron out these problems before they can cause lasting damage on my skeletal frame.

Aside from the physicality of the treatments she encourages a nourishing enjoyment of food. She makes me feel more balanced more positive and better able to cope with whatever life throws at me.’
